Iñaki Salvador is one of the Basque jazz musicians to enjoy greatest recognition on the international scene. Author of soundtracks for films, television and theatre, with numerous albums in his own name and in collaboration with others, creator of several projects warmly hailed at previous editions of the Heineken Jazzaldia and participant in the most influential Basque jazz groups. Iñaki Salvador’s musical training was strongly influenced by his long and fruitful period on the piano accompanying Mikel Laboa, the innovator of Basque song. Salvador has always expressed his admiration for such a spectacular master and in this project he addresses Laboa’s repertoire through the filter of jazz, as a homage on the tenth anniversary of his death.
